Freeing yourself of bad thoughts empowers you to be a conscious interpreter of your reality. Negativity feeds on complaints and gripes. And you may not have control over some of the situations that weigh on you. It is often the case that you can’t affect the external world but you can change how you interpret a given situation and release yourself from its negative influence over you. If you are challenged by negative energy, try taking the following steps to create a more constructive internal dialogue.
Mediation has a profound effect on healing one’s mind and body. Rewarding yourself with this quiet time to contemplate is an opportunity to restore and recharge, balance your system and usher in positivity. One of the restorative effects of mediation is better focus. The ability to target your goals, tap into your creativity, and home in on the positive blessings in your world decreases the anxiety and negative energy that can infuse your everyday life.
Meditation can also act as an inoculation against the ravages of stress. The effects of decompressing through mediation are powerful. Reduced muscle tension, lower blood pressure, and minimizing sleep issues are among the conditions that potentially can benefit from meditation.
Another positive outcome of meditation is letting go of negative, sour thoughts and interrupting the negative feedback loop that holds you back from being in the moments of your life. Being present in your thoughts and conscious of your mental impressions releases the negative and invites in a positive dialogue.
Motion and movement
Negative energy thrives in apathy and sluggishness. Break out of your inactivity by putting your body in motion. A brisk walk, a leisurely hike, or a yoga class can push negativity out to pasture. Movement helps your body to purge and suppress adverse energy. According to the Harvard Health Publishing website, exercise reduces levels of the body’s stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators.
Energetic physical activity provides your body with a much needed increase in oxygen which overrides the negativity that might be weighing you down. Movement is powerful and beneficial to breaking the negative shackles in your life.
No Complaint Zone
Complaining is one of the ways negative energy is perpetuated. Articulating and focusing on negative emotions is a destructive cycle. The more you complain and emphasize irritable feelings, the harder is to let encouraging thoughts and actions in to your life. Let go of the gripes and grievances and reframe your mindset with an optimistic point of view.
Refrain from adding another layer to the surplus of negativity in the world. Free yourself from a perpetual state of constant complaints and poor outlook. When you commit to releasing your negative energy, a whole new world opens up for you. Embrace it!
